... Creating Families,
4 Paws At A Time
Every day innocent pets are left homeless and abandoned in Chicagoland. Adopt-A-Pet has found loving homes for over 15,000 of those cats and dogs.
If you are looking for a family pet, consider adopting a wonderful pet from Adopt-A-Pet. Most of our cats and dogs are kept in foster homes, where they live as part of a family. Not only is this beneficial for the animal, but it also helps us create a purrfect match between an animal and a prospective adopter.

Unlike many organizations, we only ask for your help once a year. This is our only big fundraiser so please make sure to buy as many tickets as possible and sell them to friends and family too. The animals are depending on you more than ever. Please don’t let them down! EVERY TICKET SOLD REALLY HELPS, AND EVERY CENT GOES TO THE ANIMALS!
You may print as many Raffle tickets as you need, and photocopy them as well. Don’t want to take the time to fill every one of them out? Just sent us one, tell us the quantity you’re sending a donation for, and our Elves will fill out the tickets for you and drop them into our lucky bucket!
Click here to download raffle tickets and return stub.
There’s lots of great prizes (see list here). And as we always say, even though everyone might not win a raffle prize, everyone does win something of greater value: The satisfaction of knowing that you helped save a little life!
Drawing will be held Mar. 31, 2015. Winners notified by email or phone.

DOG WALKERS NEEDED!
Adopt-A-Pet has a new dog-walking program for our dogs fostered at Wilmette Pet.
If you like dogs and like walking, this program is for you! If you are under 18, ask a parent to do this with you ... it’s a fun thing to do together. To volunteer, just attend a Dog-Walking Orientation. They are held the first Saturday of each month (except March will be the 2nd Sat.) at:
Wilmette Pet Center 625 Green Bay Rd. 12:00-1:00 pm.
Sign up by emailing Marion at:email@example.com.
(Note: This orientation is for dog-walking volunteers only. If you are interested in becoming a full-fledged Adopt-A-Pet volunteer and helping with events, adoptions, or becoming a foster home, please see below for New Volunteer Orientation dates.)
Don’t throw it away!
Recycle paper and pets by bringing paper shreds to Wilmette Pet Center – Your Adopt-A-Pet Center!
625 Green Bay Rd., Wilmette, IL Call 847-251-6750 for store hours and more info.
Help! Anyone who has access to paper shreds for Adopt-A-Pet dogs and cats fostered at Wilmette Pet Center!
Do you shred your personal mail at home? Does your school or business shred documents? Wilmette Pet Center devotes their entire cage space, staff and resources to shelter dogs and cats - effectively becoming a satellite adoption center for Adopt-A-Pet.
Wilmette Pet Center averages 10 rescued dogs and cats weekly and paper shreds keep them safe clean, and warm!
We would appreciate any shredded material that you can donate that:
- Does not contain staples or other non-digestible debris
- Is not newspaper, as the print comes off and dirties the cages and animals
- Long single cut strands are preferred, cross-cut tends to be too dusty for bedding
Please pass this along to anyone you may know that can help!
If getting the shreds to the store is logistically impossible for you, please email Info@adoptapet-il.org and we will try to arrange a closer drop-off point or a pickup.Thank you!

Wondering how can you help??? ... please take a moment to watch this short inspirational video.
Can you offer temporary space and a little TLC to a dog, cat, puppy or kitten awaiting its permanent home?
Adopt-A-Pet seeks interim foster care for orphaned pets, many urgently needing rescue from death row at high-kill pounds.
Medical expenses are fully paid.
Food and supplies provided.
A close match to your preference is attempted.
Sadly, the number we can assist is limited to the availability of foster people willing to open their hearts and their homes.
Your help can literally save a precious life!
